Acting with a twist means that since you think you are going to get the best in any case, you might as well volunteer for the worst. That is very sneaky.
For instance, in order to gain good results for yourself, you may temporarily take the blame for something. Or you may practice lojong
very hard in order to get something out of it, or with the idea of protecting yourself from sickness. The practice of this slogan is to drop that attitude of looking for personal benefits from practice - either as an immediate or a long-term result.
